BCS Shropshire : IT Automation to the rescue, the future is bright


Following on from our most successful restart of events last month, we have a "special" this time, IT automation is all of the rage generating much M&A activity in these types of companies especially those specialising in Robotic Business Automation(RPA).

Paul McGillivraySpeaker – Paul McGillivray

Paul McGillivray explores the trends in automation that are massively disrupting the software industry, from code generation and CI/CD, to RPA and low-code platforms. This is the talk you need to attend if you're to thrive during this tsunami of change that is enveloping every market, powered by technology.


Paul McGillivray is an experienced digital strategist, with over twenty one years leading software teams at CTO level. As co-founder and CTO of Remote, an award-winning custom software agency, he leads a team of experts building online applications that automate business processes; freeing teams to do more meaningful work and make a positive impact in the world. He's worked with startups, scale-ups, and global brands like Sony, Volvo, Mitsubishi, Volkswagen Group and Tesco. He's also co-founder and CTO of Code Assembly. The company's first product, incoder, is a disruptive SaaS platform for software developers that dramatically reduces the time it takes to develop and release software. Announced at TechCrunch Disrupt in San Francisco in 2019, it is set to launch in 2021. Paul's passionate about helping business leaders to harness their purpose, using software to level-up and scale their businesses. On this theme, he's delivered keynotes at both TEDx and B1G1x events, is a co-author of the best-selling book Legacy, and is host of the Purpose First podcast, as well as a regular guest on many business podcasts. His book The Automated Business is due out in Spring 2021.
